9 Ways to move from trance to dance
The Enneagram is a map for shifting our inner lives so that we flourish more in our outer lives. It is a system for self-development that uses a nine-pointed figure to portray nine basic personality styles. Each type views life through a particular lens that shapes what we notice and value, what we see as ideal, and what we want to avoid. This narrowed perception becomes a kind of trance.
This map also shows each type its unique pathway to freedom that comes with our type. We flourish as we access all nine ways of being in the world. Weaving together ancient wisdom, contemporary psychology, and contemplative spirituality the Enneagram is a tool that transforms lives and taps into something universal in the nature and functioning of human beings.
Session One: The Human Challenge: Awakening to the Trance.
The history of the Enneagram; the human struggle to move from our small entranced selves to our vital essential selves; the model of the Enneagram; and a first look at the 9 types.
Session Two: Exploring the 9 Types: 9 Pathways to Freedom.
A deeper look at the 9 types: the various ruts that each type falls into; the pathways out of the ruts; and the unique gifts that each type possesses.
Session Three: The Spirituality of the Enneagram: Joining the Liberating Dance.
The Enneagram’s foundation is an ancient, contemplative spirituality that invites us into abundance by letting go of our trances. Each type is rooted in a Divine quality. The end journey of the Enneagram leads us not to typing ourselves, but to living differently in the world as we embrace these 9 liberating qualities.
